Today John came back from a walk with the dogs with a wounded bird. Actually our labrador had found it, and it had tried to get away from her, but couldn’t fly. Being a lab she didn’t hurt it at all. The bird looked like some kind of small raptor, like a hawk or falcon – hooked beak and all that. So we called the Nan Pipestem Wildlife Rehabilitation Center which just HAPPENS to be right down the road from us, and they told us to bring the bird over. The woman there said that it was a Kestrel! And it seemed to be doing okay when we left – they’re going to keep us posted on its progress. …John’s always finding animals to take care of – I’m sure you know one of THOSE kinds of people too – LOL..
